    This is was how it looked after the first load of fill got dumped in my front yard.

    I've been meaning to get this built for a while to block a little of the road noise and have a little more privacy.

    I'm a DIY kind of guy. Get tuned up, stick the headphones in my ears, and play in the dirt. It's therapeutic.

    Oh yeah, the town had their hand out to the tune of $50. I happily paid it to keep them off my back.

    That's the neighbor's tractor that I helped build the double deck trailer with earlier this year. I think I've been using that thing as much as him this Summer
